    Re: Bradley looks worse than lost

    Bradley’s injury will keep him out of summer league, which starts July 5. The 19-year-old guard may not be ready for another six weeks at the earliest. Bradley sprained his ankle June 13 working out for Oklahoma, causing him to miss four workouts.


    And how did you guy's forget this..  Thank god you Gm's know what's best for this team.  The Patriot boards seem pretty hard on players, but you guys win.  The guy is playing with 4 HOFer's.  Don't you think if you were a teenager you would have trouble fitting in with them too?  Give him sometime guys, huh?

    Team is 22-4 and you are worrying about a rookie 2 years removed from H.S. who missed training camp and wasn't expected to be a factor anyway.

    I don't think anyone is worried, I think we are shocked how poorly he has played and how his skills seem so inadequate at this point.  The conversation is optional but some of us just can't believe he could get picked so high with no apparent reason.

    Another awful FT shooter?

    Come on Ainge!

    I think Doc has a soft spot for developing PGs because that was his position and he understands it the best.  Also, maybe he knows something about Rondo's health that we don't know - and is trying to develop AB faster than expected because he might be needed.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Bradley looks worse than lost : The Cs won a championship 3 years ago with a point guard  who as a point guard could not get on the floor when there was not any competition at the point.  Then in his second year he showed how he was the worst shooter in the league and so on and so forth......  I think giving the second highest rated high school prospect in the country a chance to figure out the NBA over the next few years...... Or we could just simply agree that Danny is really not that much of a talent evaluator..... never drafted an all-star.... even though many posters here think that Danny should have a wing in Springfield simply for his drafting prowess.....

    Ainge "never drafted an allstar"?  You forget that Rondo has made the all-star team and he'll make many more.

    And all Ainge did was engineer the greatest one year turn around in league history.  Whether that earns him a wing in th eHOF we'll just have to see.

    Why are people so concerned about Bradley?  If West hadn't gone down, Bradley would be in the D-League.

    I don't think Ainge or Doc expected Bradley to help the team much this season.   He may or may not be a regular in the future but anything we get from him this year would be a pleasant suprise.

    Ainge got cocky, drafted a player like Gerald Green. Very raw and all potential. Could have done better drafting last June.

    Time will tell, won't it?

    The fact of the matter is that the only reason Bradley isn't in the D-League is because the team is so thin with injuries and they need him to have decent practice scrimmages.  

    Come playoff time you know the team won't make a title run if Harangody, Erden or Bradley see real PT.

    True. The problem is Ainge wanted to make another run at the championship, but instead of drafting a player that's NBA ready he drafted a 19-year old kid who's only 6-2 and played SG in college.

    TA was a free-agent at that time. So was Marquis Daniels. That meant Ray and Pierce had no backups. Delonte was not even on the radar at that time because he was still with the Cavs.

    This is not Bradley's fault, this is on Ainge.

    Re: Bradley looks worse than lost

    When a team is drafting late first round, the pick is gnerally for the future rather than with an expectation of instant help, particularly for a title run.

    When was the last time a late first rounder played a key role in a title run in his rookie year?

    Bradley may or may not become an NBA regular  but I don't think anyone reasonably thought that a late 1st rounder would be an important part of a title contender.

    2008 Draft #22 pick Courtney Lee

    Remember the 2009 playoffs when Ray Allen was being hounded by a rookie named Courtney Lee?

    You're right.  I forgot about Lee.] The exception that proves the rule.

    Don't forget BBD he was a second rounder.  He was good right of the bat and  obviously much better now.
